In a clash laden with anticipation, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Borussia Dortmund are set to renew their European rivalry as they kick off their latest Champions League campaigns. This time, it’s former Barcelona treble-winning coach, Luis Enrique, at the helm for PSG, aiming to conquer the coveted Champions League title that has eluded them despite their domestic dominance.
However, his start in Paris has been anything but ideal, with PSG languishing in fifth place in Ligue 1 after a series of underwhelming performances.
On the other side, Borussia Dortmund, perennial Bundesliga contenders, are also looking to break their Champions League jinx. Edin Terzic’s side has been consistent but fell just short in the previous seasons. Dortmund enters this clash with a 13-game unbeaten streak, showcasing their attacking prowess but also highlighting a vulnerability in defense.
Both teams have history, with PSG defeating Dortmund in the 2019-20 Champions League knockout stages. This encounter promises a thrilling spectacle, as two European giants seek to overcome early-season struggles and make a statement in the tournament.
Expect fireworks at the Parc des Princes as these teams battle to reignite their European dreams and take a significant step towards Champions League glory.
